This curiously named, prolific fruiter has long been a favourite species among psilocybin enthusiasts for a number of reasons. Let’s explore its past and uncover some interesting facts about the Pacifica Exotica Spora Amazonia (PES AMA).

The name PES Amazonia can be confusing at first, but it simply refers to the Pacifica Spora company which first developed the after they were found in the wild. This species, with origins from deep within the Amazonian rainforest, is a psilocybe cubensis variety.


It is reported that the species has long been used by indigenous cultures and ancient civilizations in helping them attain a degree of spiritual enlightenment. Perhaps the cerebral nature of its effects is responsible for this association.


PES Amazonia, or AMA for short, often gives a short & stubby fruiting body with solid stems. The shrooms can grow quite large compared to other popular strains and have a reddish tint on their caps. Many seasoned growers report much larger yields from second and third flushes, so this is an important fact to bear in mind when exploring the intricacies of the PES AMA.

Generally speaking, the PES AMA is considered a great option for beginners due to its potency, ease of growth, and the fact that it often yields multiple impressive flushes. Although, it is important to note that experiences vary from person to person. Experiences can depend on a variety of factors such as the individual’s biochemistry, mindset, and even the circumstances in which they ingest these magical, ancient fungi.

It is therefore very important to be safe, informed, prepared, and respectful of any psilocybin-containing species.

How does the PES Amazonian compare to Hawaiian species?

The Hawaiian is also a cubensis species with quite a textbook appearance. You can expect beautiful, stalky picturesque fruiting bodies from the PES Hawaii. While not the tallest species, the PES Hawaii will yield wider, dense caps which can sometimes have speckles on them.

Perhaps the most interesting fact about the Hawaiian species is the name which some find misleading. Unlike the Amazonian, this species was not named after its origins. While both species were developed by the PES company, they named this species the Hawaiian after their headquarters which were in Honolulu, Hawaii.

It is also reported that the Hawaii loves to grow on dung piles, much like its Georgian cousin, the Golden Teacher. Compared to the Amazonian, the Hawaiian species can have a higher potency and cause beautiful, colorful visuals when the eyes are closed.
